Made a breakthrough this week in training. With the help of the coach, I was able to significantly increase my stride length, which in turn increases my top sprint speed. Now, I just have to practice that technique consistently, to make it ingrained. It took a few goes to find a way for me to understand the instructions, then sense and make the necessary changes to my technique.
Good timing too, this Sunday I will be competing in a track meet. I have entered the 100m, 200m and 400m sprints, and look forward to seeing how much progress I've made against my previous performances.
Also, the fire brigade training starts in a couple of weeks, which will be another opportunity to review my progress. Looking forward to this summer! :) -Tony
